In a recent survey, 64% of people report a significant increase in patients under 30 years old. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that BOTOX® procedures have seen a 28% increase since 2010 in the age group 20-29.
Many reasons exist for why Millennials are seeking BOTOX more than ever.
Social media has a lot to do with the BOTOX surge for younger people. Users see other people getting it and they want to have it too. Those users don’t want to be left behind the anti-aging train, so they get injectables to ward off fine lines and wrinkles for as long as possible.
Selfies can go along with social media, but not always. People are taking pictures of themselves nearly every day, and this causes them to look at themselves more than any other generation. When people look at themselves more, they see more that they would like to change, which leads them to look at cosmetic enhancements.
Injectables have been around for many years, but they haven’t been as effective as they are now. People know they work. They also know the results look natural, as long as they go to someone who is experienced, such as James Christian Sardelli, RPA-C.
The Millennial generation is into self-care much more than other generations. When people seek aesthetic services, they do it to take care of themselves. The media encourages people to take better care of themselves because self-neglect has happened for a long time. Millennials are taking self-care and running with it, and right into places like James Christian Cosmetics.
People used to keep their cosmetic enhancements a secret, and while some people still do, there’s a greater number of people who are sharing their pride in improving their appearance with injectables. This is why you see celebrities talking about it and social media users showing off their results.
